Filet Mignon pron
 
So me and my bros scored some wagyu filet. Slightly trimmed it and cut into steaks.

Salt and peppered them and on the grill they went. Half direct and half indirect as you can see.

A sucky cell pic but while probing we started eating them off the grill. :mrgreen:

Of course the plated pic. I did my best. Glad we ate a few off the grill since by the time they made it to the table, got plated, they went over.

Hands down the best steak I've ever had. My younger brother said that's the best "marshmallow" I've ever had. Couldn't agree more.

That marbling looks ridiculous!

HOLY WOWWWW. I do prime filet quite a bit (my fav cut of beef) but that looks out of this world.

Offthehook 01-08-2014 04:32 PM

BTW, I just noticed you are in LA, is it somewhere local?

You said it perfect. It was truly out of this world. Nothing I've experienced before even at the high end steakhouses.

Damn, that steak looks FINE!

:shock: I don't know that I've ever seen a better looking cut of tenderloin than that. Absolutely gorgeous.

I like the marshmallow analogy too... It paints a very vivid picture for me.

BTW, by the looks of it you might have used a Rapala fillet knife to carve them up based on the scabbard. I've had mine for over twenty years and it's still going strong. It's a shadow of it's former self from being sharpened so many times but I still use it often.

I preach the gospel all the time on here lol. The place is called Harmony Farms on Foothill Blvd in La Crescenta/The Foothills. They have all kinds of specialty meats and you can order pretty much whatever you want.

Looking fantastic to me!

Thanks Al,

I love that knife. I have a nice knife set but I tend to grab that one before anything. Love carving, filleting, basically anything that need to be fine "tuned" for the lack of a better word. I've had it two years and havent't sharpened it yet. Still like brand new and I paid $15.:shock:

WOW. Looks and probably taste like beef heaven.

I'm scared to ask what you paid, but almost don't care after these pictures.
